Lift Pulse

Lift Pulse
developed by Lift Labs/Lynx Design


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

English

Cost: Free
Records the extent of a user's tremor via the smartphone's accelerometer.
“ ‘Lift Pulse’ 2.0, a smart phone app created by Lift Labs, has released the results of data gathered from users since updating the app in June 2013. Lift Pulse 2.0 includes a journal feature that measures and records tremors. It also records what medications you’re taking for tremor, and how you’re doing with sleep, exercise, and stress. The app stores your journal entries anonymously in Lift Lab’s private database. You have access to this data through your phone and computer, and Lift Lab analyses it to provide you with information on how different factors affect your tremor. Among the data extracted from users of Lift Pulse 2.0, Lift Labs found: the most commonly-used prescription is Propranolol (Inderal), followed by Primidone (Mysoline); exercise exacerbates amplitude of tremor; and people who reported less stress have less severe tremor symptoms. Lift Pulse 2.0 users have measured their tremor almost 4,000 times so far, and that number continues to grow, according to Lift Labs.” ‘Tremor Talk’, International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) blog, USA | http://bit.ly/1opBDHc

You can view your history and trends…The history shows how you did on different tests and the trends show your baseline, performance, PD symptoms, fatigue and medication over time… enabling you to continually monitor your performance with respect to when you took medication for example. There is also a ‘diary only’ option which allows you to simply look at your PD symptoms, fatigue and medication over time.”

uMotif

uMotif
developed by uMotif Limited, UK


RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free
App for people with Parkinson's disease; medication reminder and tracker of symptoms and well-being.
“The uMotif technology is based on the concept of daily self-tracking, which leads to greater understanding and engagement with health and well-being. uMotif began as a simple sleep and well-being tracker, and has developed into software to support a range of health outcomes. The main uMotif tracking interface comprises a number of segments, each of which represents an aspect of daily life. Each segment is scored subjectively each day, to give the user an idea of how they are doing in general. The process of self-tracking is a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), proven to help people change their behaviour, and achieve their goals. The app is primarily based on the self-tracking motif interface. The app is designed from the perspective of the patient, but is also designed to support health professionals. If people choose, they can share their data with their neurologist, Parkinson’s nurse, GP or anyone else. Most of us know how we felt yesterday, but not how we were 3 weeks ago. Using the uMotif app to track on a daily basis can fill in the gaps, and improve treatments.” Cure Parkinson’s Trust/Parkinson’s Movement, UK | http://bit.ly/1HFyHgy
